The Landscape Architecture programmes at the University of Greenwich will continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a lecture by Martin Rein-Cano, founder of Topotek1. Martin will deliver a Hawksmoor International Lecture on Thursday 18th February at 6:30pm.

In his lecture Martin Rein-Cano will be presenting a Topotek 1 project, Superkilen in Copenhagen. Superkilen is a public park in the cultural diverse neighbourhood of Nørrebro, Copenhagen. As a reflection and celebration of the neighbourhoods heterogeneity, a collection of foreign objects representing over 50 nationalities allow the reality of diversity to be spectacled, the objects coming to represent the identities of the community’s migrant backgrounds into Danish public space.

The 50th anniversary of the Landscape programmes at Greenwich has been marked by a Landscape themed conference in September, with Greenwich graduates including Marti Franch (Estudi Marti Franch: Arquitectura del Paisaige), an exhibition of graduate work and a lecture by James Corner (Field Operations) in November. News of further events will be published on The Landscape.

The lecture is free and open to the public on a first-come first-served basis – and will be followed by a drinks reception.
